The state's domestic violence legislation does include same-sex relationships. The state is certified by the FBI to submit NIBRS data; law enforcement agencies submit data to the New Hampshire Department of Public Safety Division of State Police. Since incident-based reporting is not mandated in the state, approximately 146 of the 225 law enforcement agencies statewide report to the State Police. Agencies submitting summary offense counts do not report additional information on domestic and sexual violence incidents.
The State Police share the incident-based data with the New Hampshire Department of Justice, which also collects quarterly statistical reports from the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. The Coalition collects client-based information from its 14 member agencies. These members use contact logs to collect information on the clients and types of services provided; personal identifiers are not captured in the database. The Coalition publishes the data annually; all data and reports are available upon request.
The Governor's Commission on Domestic and Sexual Violence collects information on domestic homicides; two advocates collect victim and offender information for every domestic and sexual violence homicide in the state using standardized report forms. The information is then entered into the Department of Justice's Homicide Database. The Commission also oversees the Domestic Fatality Review Committee, which conducts reviews of the domestic violence homicide cases and publishes statistics in an annual report. Data are available upon request.
